Pink Shoes

Maggie from Pink Shoes is here to remind us that every moment is important!

I’m Maggie.

I wear the badge of adoptive mom with honor, pride, thankfulness, and humility. I live everyday in awe of the fact that my daughter’s birth parents chose my husband and I to raise Georgia as ours, and to entrust us with her future and well-being; both physically and emotionally.

Pink Shoes is a platform for me to write about those everyday, very simple moments that make a life and what I can learn from them. The writer Annie Dillard says, “How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.” I refuse to let simple occurrences in the course of a grocery shopping trip, a rainy morning at home, a meeting at work, dinner out, dinner in, a walk in the woods, a disagreement with a friend, an over-flowing laundry basket, a drive to my parents house, or an inside joke with my husband pass me by–because if I did–I’d be letting my life pass me by.

    Maggie, you are amazing! I always wanted to adopt children but then I had 3 of my own and I’m maxed out. I think that what you are doing is an amazing thing and you seem to handle it with grace and love. The pictures above are beautiful.

    Happy Sits Day! What a beautiful story, glad open adoption is working well for you, your precious daughter and her birth-mom.

    Great post! I am adopted as well – terrific to see a blog that speaks openly about life in general and how adoption “chose” them rather than the other way around.

    What a sweet and refreshing outlook you have! I feel like if I hung out with you for a day my life would be better :) I’ll settle for perusing your blog. Have a wonderful SITS day!!

      That’s a really nice thing to say and a challenge to me. “Would people really be better if they hung out with me for a day?” Hmmmm…….I probably need to start being more patient with my daughter.

    Wow! You guys were blessed with a darling little girl. She looks like your biological daughter even with her hair being blond. May the Lord bless you with many more happy and healthy years together. Enjoy the SITS day and the holidays!
